I am a keen follow of Chris Brogran - he writes some insightful stuff.

I particularly liked this recent blog-post entitled Pursue the Goal Not the Method as it reminded me of what so many people do wrong with KM. They pursue KM for its own sake and ask questions like "How do you do KM?" Doing KM is not the goal. Responding to business objectives, problems, barriers, opportunities and risks is the goal. KM is just an affective approach.

In other words - merging the two tag lines: "Don't do KM - Pursue the Goal Not the Method"

Thanks Chris!
